Loewenstein: Non-Jewish Leftists also think he's an idiot.

Writing in The Australian, Nick Dyrenfurth notes:
Perhaps the most disturbing local contribution came from another Drum regular, anti-Israel activist Antony Loewenstein, who announced that "the West has much to learn". Bin Laden's "[terrorist] tactics were abhorrent and failed to attract huge numbers of followers" Loewenstein surmised, nonetheless the West's subjugation of Muslims meant that the "arguments for his organisation's force have only strengthened since 9/11".

In other words, Osama was a nasty piece of work but fighting the good fight against imperialist crusaders. (Never mind that the majority of al-Qa'ida's victims have been Muslim.) Loewenstein concluded by offering a paean of praise: "Bin Laden died a man who profoundly changed the landscape of the world."

Well, yes, he certainly changed Lower Manhattan's landscape.
Loewenstein believes
Not all resistance to Western occupation is terrorism
and he has also stated that Osama bin Laden's death constitutes "murder".

Being an incompetent writer and a dishonest propagandist is one thing. Advocating for people directly responsible for the death of Australians (and many other innocents) is another. The man is a disgrace. As is any media which give him space to fuel his ego.

But he's good enough for 'Our ABC'.
